Difficult topics with kind discussion

I really enjoy the show. It's usually informative and structured in a way that is easy to follow. The show touches upon very difficult subjects in an artfully thoughtful and understanding way. I'm currently using this in conjunction with therapy to help navigate toxic family dynamics.
